A Boston man feels he is "vindicated" after a court found him "not responsible" for cell phone use, as he was accused of taking a picture of a Lexington police officer in May, reported FOX Boston. 

Dr. Curtis Schondelmeyer took a photo of Lexington officer John Frissore while the officer worked traffic, indicating that he was upset with the officer talking on his phone, reported FOX. Schondelmeyer then got a ticket for "impeded operation with a handheld device" for $40. In Concord District Court on Wednesday, he argued that he wasn't driving and considered the ticket "payback." He was found not responsible in minutes, said FOX.

Vindication, indeed. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is one of the only places in the United States of America that uses extra-duty police officers rather than flag persons to direct traffic around work sites on the roads and highways. In my experience, the police officers do a much worse job of directing traffic than the flag persons and at a much higher cost.
